When To Get 1997 Chevrolet C1500 Suburban Suspension Service

When you first drove your 1997 Chevrolet C1500 Suburban, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your C1500 Suburban bounces, leans to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1997 Chevrolet C1500 Suburban, bring it in for steering and suspension services. We'll pinpoint the problem.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis parts, axle bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your C1500 Suburban steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Chevrolet C1500 Suburban

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1997 Chevrolet C1500 Suburban suspension system. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there's no set schedule for 1997 Chevrolet C1500 Suburban shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking back and forth can all point to issues with your Chevrolet C1500 Suburban shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1997 Chevrolet C1500 Suburban suspension shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.
